My husband and I are in our 50's, so no kids at home. We recently bought a house on a double lot so we would have room for our Rhodesian and to add a rescue dog. Sadly, our Rhodesian got an aggressive cancer around the same time and we lost her in August. We're taking our time to grieve and find our next pup, which we are committed to being a rescue.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs as an adult, with vet records in your own name (not parents' names)?
We recently lost our Rhodesian, who was registered under my name. We opted her in Jan. 2015. We also had a Bichon from 2005 until February of this year. She was also registered in my name.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We had a standard poodle mix when I was a kid and she was such an amazing dog. Smart and sweet like her non-poodle dad. We don't fully know her mix because at the time, the poodle was a show dog and this "neighborhood" litter was considered an embarrassment, which is extra funny now because our pup would now be a designer dog. We also like the possibility of a non-shedding dog, but recognize that this might not be the case.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
Not at this time, but we would seriously consider fostering. Right now, we're filling our empty home with our grand puppies as often as possible.

Welcome to the DRC website. Here is a ‘must read’ article with information you should know before you apply to adopt a doodle: http://doodlerescue.org/forum/topics/information-for-anyone-interested-in-adopting-a-doodle. Here is a link to our adoption guidelines which include that you must have owned a dog before and also supply a vet reference. Please read the guidelines before filling out an application to make sure that you meet them. http://doodlerescueinc.ning.com/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES. The application itself is at the top of any page, but here is a link: http://doodlerescue.org/page/adoption-application-2. The application doesn’t obligate you in any way but it opens the lines of communication with the adoption coordinator. Quite often, a new dog who comes into the program is adopted before he/she is ever listed, because our adoption coordinator is aware of a good approved applicant who would be a good match for that dog. However once you have an approved application on file, if you see a dog under the DRC’s care (either on the DRC Facebook page or PetFinder) that you feel would be a good fit for your family, an e-mail can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org stating that there is an application on file and you would like to be considered for (name of dog).
When looking at the adoptable dogs here, Petfinder, or our FaceBook page, notice the two letters in front of the dog’s name mean the state they are being fostered in. While the DRC allows out of state applicants, they cannot transport the rescues and will not let them fly, so adopters need to be within driving distance to pick the dog up. Our FaceBook page often has photos of the dogs being fostered before the doodles are listed on PetFinder.
